Regency bib front dress bodiced petticoat

  Petticoats are in this period completed with a bodice or straps, which hold them in a typical high waistline. The bodiced petticoat is made of cotton batiste according to the extant bodiced petticoat dated to c. 1800 located in Museum Killerton House, only front bodice parts however are not tied by ties as the original but have been extended and are fastened by pins as it was usual for the dress to provide better support to the bust.
